In a post on their Facebook Limerick Fire Brigade said: “It was a purrfect rescue for Green Watch tonight!”
“A passerby stopped into the station, their catalitic converter was purring a little louder than normal – thankfully with a little purrsuasion and not much procatstination – a furry pawsitive outcome as we were able to release this little fella from their engine.”
“Clawsome work lads. We’re happy to report the car owners whiskder away to a happy new home.”
